Before installing the TelScope computers on board, the shore connection must be initialized. For a dual installation, this must be done for both the TelScope computers.
We highly recommend to do this on shore before installing the computers on the vessel. The server needs general internet access to complete this step.
- Connect a display, keyboard and mouse to the computer and connect the computer to internet.
- Turn on the computer. It will log in automatically (no password required) and show web browser in full screen.
- Open a new tab with Ctrl+T and type in the url: http://localhost:3003
The shore preparation page
The goal of this stage is to configure the vpn between the shore servers and the TelScope computer and to download the license file for TelScope. The process is fully automated.
- Type in the IMO number of the vessel and press the "Initialize" button.
The status section shows what part of the process has been successfully completed.
When the process has been completed the VPN connection can be tested with the button. Please make sure connection if working before installing the computer on board. This eases the troubleshooting if the connection can not be established when the computer is installed on board.
- Repeat this process for the second computer.
Initializing the dual connection
For the first computer, a final step is needed to initialize the dual setup. This initialization is done via the shore servers, so the two computers don't have to be connected at this stage.
- On the first computer, press the "Exchange keys" button after the second computer is initialized to complete the shore preparation of this computer.
The initialization process can only be carried out once.
Contact email@example.com for assistance if the initialization process fails.
